Which of the eventual LG G3 features are you looking forward to the most?

Which of the eventual LG G3 features are you looking forward to the most?
The LG G3 announcement is fast approaching, and with yesterday's semi-official confirmation of all of its specs, we want to ask you which of the stand-out features are you looking forward to most.

To sum it up, yesterday's leaked slides revealed that the LG G3 (at least its Asian version) will sport a 5.5" IPS-LCD display with 1440x2560 pixels of Quad HD resolution, whose 538ppi pixel density would be a record for a brand-name flagship. In addition, LG lists that it is a perfectly calibrated panel, covering a 100% of the standard sRGB color gamut, which bodes very well for its color representation reviews, and your penchant for online shopping.

Furthermore, the displayed 146.3 x 74.6 x 8.9 mm dimensions make the phone only slightly wider than the Xperia Z2, for instance, while Sony's phone has smaller, 5.2" display, so we are expecting a very good screen-to-phone ratio from LG's seasonal flagship. When it comes to the silicon inside, the G3 is shown to sport a Snapdragon 801 chipset with Adreno 330 GPU, paired with the generous 3 GB of RAM. Given that this is the Qualcomm processor of choice for the other seasonal flagships, like the Galaxy S5 and Xperia Z2, we'd have to say that LG has covered its base here, but if the eventual Galaxy S5 Prime pops up with Snapdragon 805, the chairs could be rearranged.

On the back, a 13 MP camera with OIS+ tech will be vying for the shutterbugs' attention, and we'd wager to guess it is a module very similar to the one in the G Pro 2 phablet, which has proven to be very capable in the camera department already. The 3000 mAh battery is par for the course with these phablets, unless it translates into a stellar battery life, but we'll only know this when we run our test on the retail unit. 

We are also expecting a new, flatter interface, with a plethora of new functions, and overhauled visuals, which might be the biggest UI redesign in LG's Android history. Finally, LG already announced a set of unique accessories for the G3, like the QuickCircle case with Smart Lighting that takes advantage of the new lock screen, and the Tone Infinim Bluetooth headset with record battery endurance, and G3-specific features. Which of those niceties are you looking forward to the most? Take your pick in the poll below, and sound off in the comments.

If the G3 were water/dust proof I would certainly be looking at this phone.

Other than that, this phone is a CLEAR winner! LG is on fire for sure.

All my RESPECT goes to LG also. To me it's Samsung, HTC, LG, & Sony as the cream of the crop when it comes to Android flagships.

It would still have a small enough bezel in a waterproof case, and someone is surely going to make one - it just makes sense for this phone

oh Boy! here we go..

dude, if you like something, please vote, else, don't! You don't however have to troll on every article.

Besides the 801 that other flagships have, nothing else here is "Standardized!"

Mentioning few of them, these are not standardized as of now: QHD, OIS, Those Bezels and AF Laser assist. Surely 'standardization' is probably not very far away for these, but as of now they're not.

Sony, HTC, LG, OnePlus, Nexus, Chinese OEMs are chucking up flagships after flagships. Even Apple's making phone with big screen. I'd be an idiot to buy a galaxy s5 now.

There was a poll running around which showed that the feature that buyers valued the most was battery autonomy. Do all those people who voted for the screen resolution know that it incurs in a severe battery usage penalty? Without any noticeable advantage, at usable operating distance???
I really don't understand where this is all going. It's looking like the megapixel race in compacts where everyone was taking shaitty pictures with an ever growing resolution.
Eventually they figured it out...

Even now LG's custom UI runs extremely smooth, now with the update, it will run like svelte. TouchWiz on the other hand.... One day :)

Touchwiz is fully loaded vs quarter speced

I'm disappointed the phone isn't at least water resistant. Its cool to have the fastest processor, biggest screeen, etc. However at the end of the day I just need something that is plenty fast (all flagships are), something I don't have to treat like a newborn baby and will take quality pics when my kids do something unexpected. I had hoped this phone would beat the S5 in that regard but clearly it doesn't. Color me disappointed.

Oh and one more thing. STOP GROWING THE SIZE OF PHONES. Either that or give those of us that want flagship features/specs a smaller option. A 5-5.2" screen with zero bezel is plenty large enough. Any larger than that it gets hard to hold, fit in the pocket, carry around, etc. I don't need a phablet.

Add me to the disappointed group.
The absence of waterproofing is a big let down.

games are yet to be optimized for such high res. i hav seen the gameplay on note pro and it not only looks awful but also gameplay is glitchy. let's see how g3 performs .
But honestly I would like to see better optimization in gaming department than in soc because most of the games by gameloft doesnt use all 4 cores in high end games n uses only 2 cores and then games like vice city n San Andrews lag on high settings. if they can make at least 3 cores running at max that's still fine but not just 2 cores running at max because then we get only 25-35 fps on an average :(

After the secret Korean launch, I'd be honest that it'll be a tough decision for me to choose between this and the S5. While it's a straight LG for me when comparing LG Optimus G Pro vs Note 2 and G2 vs S4, This seems to not the case compared to the S5. There seem to be not much of an advantage from this against the S5. I can tell that the design looks much more sleek and elegant, the bezels are much smaller and the UI seemingly is going to be better than S5's Touchwiz. It seems lacking in the camera department (it seems not to be much different than the G2 or G Pro 2, although I still hope they've improved it), there is also a lack of Fingerprint sensor, Waterproofness and USB 3.0 (AFAIK) and of course, while it may or may not count, you shouldn't really forget the Egronomics. The G3 is slightly larger than the S5 and might cause some problems for smaller hands (like mine). Lets hope that the QHD IPS display brings something spectacular rather than a flop, the 'Infrared AF Assist light' to be something not just gimmicky and 'Harman Kardon' speakers to be something to be desired. It could be a better option than the S5 Still. If it does come with a Snapdragon 805 SoC it'll be a straight LG over anything like in 2013, but now, it seems not... I mean 2013 was a amazingly excellent year from the Mobile Division of LG. I hope they actually bring something '2013ish' in 2014.

You'd be best to pair it with the LG G3 only as it comes with support for Hi-fi audio, whereas the Note 3 doesn't. If you want to pair the tone infinim with a true phablet, then try the LG G PRO 2, which also supports Hi fi audio.

All of the features! I still want something that makes the large screen better in terms of productivity though...kinda like what Samsung has done
